Dusseldorf in Germany to host Eurovision Song Contest
Dusseldorf will host next year's Eurovision Song Contest following Germany's victory in Oslo this year with Satellite by Lena Meyer-Landrut.
It beat competition from Berlin, Hamburg and Hanover which all bid to host the event.
The contest's three live events - semi-finals on 10 and 12 May and the final on 14 May - will take place at the Esprit Arena.
"Dusseldorf twelve points," said Lutz Marmor, of German host broadcaster NDR.
"I congratulate Dusseldorf cordially and, just as cordially, I thank the other three cities for going into the race enthusiastically with attractive concepts."
Lena's Satellite was a number one hit in a number of European countries, including Germany and Sweden, while it reached number 30 in the UK.
